Easy Steps to Acrylic Application
We have rewritten our 10 step How to Apply Acrylic Nails Guide to be more indepth for the user.

If there is acrylic stuck in the middle of the brush get a cuticle stick and using the bevelled edge scrape the stick in a downward direction over the and through the bristles. You need to clean your brush until there is no acylic left of the bristles.
